, she gets an f. >> that ad, that pressure ad comes from new york city mayor michael bloomberg's pro-gun reform superpac. it's part of his campaign to build support in congress for meaningful national gun reform. and you know what? it appears to be working. once that ad started running in her district, debbie halvorson, who had said she would not be moved on this issue, debbie halvorson moved on this issue. ms. halvorson telling buzzfeed, quote, my win will not be a victory for the nra. how can it be a victory for the nra when i'm for universal background checks, beefing up the database, going after straw buyers and making sure we register our guns. those are not things the nra wants. that's true. those are not things the nra wants. and that is probably going to make it hard to hold on to that nra "a" rating. but maybe that's not the most important thing in the world anymore? in the debate over gun policy and gun laws, we are supposed to believe that the only real pressure on this issue comes from the nra, who of course always push against reform. but there is pressure on the other s

leader willing to stand up to the gun lobby is new york mayor michael bloomberg. his gun control group produced that ad that you just saw with christina's mother. he confirmed yes, that he's advising vice president joe biden that joe biden's task force will present to the president. it will likely include universal background checks, national database for gun sales mental health checks hasher penalties for guns near schools. all of these are steps in the right direction but today "new york times" columnist called on mayor bloomberg to do more than just advise on policy. he called on him to put his money where his mouth is. and this is what he wrote quote, millions of americans indeed, a majority of them agree with you. they are looking for somebody to lead the charge against the nra. it is an effort worthy of your talents and your money. of course, mayor bloomberg does have the funds for it. in fact, while the nra spent $17 million on the 2012 election mayor bloomberg has a net worth of $22 billion. if money can, in fact, shape public opinion mayor bloomberg could bury the nra. today t
had equivalent power and you have things like michael bloomberg saying i will spend money, the same money the nra is spending. the pressure is different and i think the democrats and republicans who sort of have been in the nra camp are feeling pressure they never felt before. the nra doesn't have the power they used to. by the way, they didn't do that well. the candidates they supported during the election, their margin wasn't very good. >> and reading lapierre's comments, they weren't necessarily as incendiary when he really defended the rights of people -- the message is the same but the way he's saying is a little more subdued. >> it goes to our point here, they are under pressure. they are at attack with president obama with the security of his daughters back fired horribly. the audience is the hard core ar-15 owner, it's those in the middle that support gun rights but support gun safety and oppose crime. i think again, there is some pressure here on the nra to put more of a foot forward that can appeal to people beyond their core membership. >> let me bring in kentucky congres
michael bloomberg. they're raising a lot of money. one thing i want to point out is that gabby giffords' new group, the americans for responsible solutions has gotten a $1 million donation from a couple in texas and trial lawyers there who were politically active. do you think this type of money and this type of support can beat the nra at its own game? >> i don't think it's a matter of plague partisan politics or anti-nra. i think every american wants to make sure that we have schools that are safe and that our kids are protected no matter what and any cause, and i don't think it's a matter of liberal, moderate or conservative in this matter because it's about human beings and about americans because american lives are at rick. if any of these groups can find a way for the violence to top taking place and the loss of life of young people in schools that's a good thing and i think everybody would be happy and support it because we all want to see it end. >> so that's your approach and someone who from the right has their perspective, but i want to play for everybody what the nra, presid
